Nadal beat Moya 6-7(3) 7-6(8) 7-6(1) - the record of the longest three-setter is equaled :sad:
3 hours 54 minutes were playing also Andrei Cherkasov and Andrea Gaudenzi 15 years ago in Tel Aviv (quarterfinal). Cherkasov won 6-7(6) 7-6(2) 7-5.

Moya's amazing tie-break record is finished

:sad: :mad:

Of course, but I was cheering for Carlos :yeah: Rafa is an unbelievable fighter. Not many players could have saved 2 out of these 4 match points :shrug:

Voo...I LOVE all of your stats. :worship:

If Rafa had converted a decent number of the break chances he had, it wouldn't have even been this close.

Surprisingly, both of the longest 3set matches were played on hard. Gaudenzi and Cherkasov played 15 more points than Moya/Nadal though, so this really was the longest three-setter ever.

Not exactly. It means that the Spaniards just played a bit longer rallies :shrug:

An interesting comparison.

Moya beat Vicente at RG in 2005 in five sets. The two played 54 more points on clay and the match was 3 minutes shorter than this one.

Nadal taking his time between points probably added 30 minutes to the playing time compared to a different player ;)
